I'm so sorry for the mistakes on last night's math homework. Clearly I cannot do multiple things at once. I copied a homework page from last year, then realized it didn't fit the county's changes to the pacing of the standards, as the word problems went to 100 instead of 20. I then quickly went in and changed numbers, but clearly didn't read them well to make sure the changes made sense. This was done while eating lunch and returning e-mails. No more multi-tasking for me!!
We were in our class for our science lab time today. The class played a game and tried to guess the "secret matter" based on the property clues given by Mrs. Dess. The students also tried to identify different liquids based on their properties. The class also compared and contrasted different solids. Here are some pictures of our scientists hard at work.
Today's Exemplars in math was inspired by Laura Numeroff's book about the Jelly Beans. We'll continue working on problem solving when we return from break. The problem solving assessment will be on October 6th.
